It’s getting to be that time of the year again, that special time where those who aren’t going to the San Diego Comic Con wonder just how in the hell they are going to get the exclusives that the want. Hasbro’s finally got pictures of all their stuff, so let’s just take a look at their offerings.
Baroness is looking decent, but she’s based off the movie. Will that hurt or help the desire collectors will have to own her? I’m thinking hurt, at least a little bit.
Destro Two Pack
This is another set I’m really split on. On the one hand it’s full of awesome, because you have a Christopher Eccleston figure and an old school Destro relative for the first time ever. Then again, it’s tied right into Rise of Cobra, which looks like it will stink on ice. Will this set be another Pimp Daddy Destro? I doubt it, though it might beat the popularity of the business suit wearing Cobra Commander from last year.
Invaders Box Set
I have a pretty big “Meh” for this one. I mean, I like the whole idea behind it, but I’m pretty sure I can get the only figures that I want out of this later in some fashion (wing head cap and Red Skull).
Why should I or anyone else want this? Because he’s frozen? Pass.
The only reason I can think that anyone else (or me for that matter) might want this is that ladder.
Force Unleashed Stormtrooper
If you absolutely need every single paint variant Stormtrooper, then I guess this is for you. Hopefully this will lower the after market price for this guy in general, because those Gamestop ones shouldn’t be so desirable any more.
I wrote down my impressions on this here blog of Soundwave a long while back. I’m a bit softened up to him since then, because it would be a great way to get those cassettes.
Mighty Muggs Optimus
Why do people want these things? Furthermore, why would anyone want this figure who was already released?
Mighty Muggs Wolverine
The only thing that would make this the least bit interesting to me is if this Wolverine had pop out claws. Does anyone know if it does?
My Little Pony
I’m only really including this here because my wife will kill me if I don’t secure one for her.
